A Gift from the Heart

Giving a gift from the heart is expressing the most special kind of love!

LVDI International and our partner, Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve, kindly thank Singing Hearts Children’s Choir (SHCC) for sharing their love with the children of Fanjingshan. Last May SHCC along with the Shanghai Female Journalist Choir put on a spectacular performance, A Special Love, at the historical Shanghai Concert Hall. Through the Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation – Han Public Welfare Special Fund, they donated their concert proceeds to the nature reserve to help rural children in our Little Green Guards® program learn about animal biology and protect their natural heritage – the endangered Guizhou snub-nosed monkey. Soon we will be training local teachers and starting an exciting year with new lesson plans.
